Temple University Horticulture major Katie Roberts’ educational career began at Temple Ambler as many other journeys do. It started with a road trip. “I was a business major for one and a half years but I knew early on that simply wasn’t what I was meant to do with my life. I had a professor in Florida who was teaching a horticulture course and I simply fell in love with the program — his passion for the subject inspired me. It wasn’t long before I discovered Temple’s Horticulture program and the Ambler Campus,” said Roberts, 21, who transferred to Temple from Florida Southern College in spring 2018.

Newly minted Temple Ambler Owl Heather Earlin has a specific motivation for pursuing her degree in Psychology. “When I look at things from a psychological standpoint, the world makes much more sense to me,” she said. “I can analyze why people do what they do and why they say certain things or chose to approach situations the way they do. It gives me a better understanding of the world around me.”
It wasn’t so very long ago that Dr. Kimberly Cooney was in the same position as the students she is dedicated to guiding in her new role as Manager of Student Success and Retention at Temple University Ambler. “I had to answer the same questions when I was an undergraduate at Temple. What is the right major for me? What profession? How do I achieve my goals,” said Cooney, who graduated with a degree in Psychology from Temple in 2006. “Each student has different needs, particularly when they are starting out; it can be a very complicated process. My goal is to help them determine how they got here and where they want to go.” As Manager of Student Success and Retention, a new position at the Ambler Campus, Cooney will work with the Office of Academic and Student Services to provide direct student services to all current and prospective transfer students at Temple Ambler from initial recruitment through graduation.
